CAIRO: Officials at the Borg al-Arab airport near Alexandria detained a woman traveling to Dubai for being in possession of 320,000 Saudi Riyals ($85,000.)

The woman, identified as “A.G.” had the bills on her person, which were discovered during routine security screening, Youm7 reported.

The Sallum border also sees numerous smuggling attempts, and is under scrutiny from security officials. In April, a man was arrested trying to carry $1.9 million across the border into Libya.
